Unfortunately when adding my coolant. It turned pink........ It was also suppose to be UV red.

The Red also does not glow like stated. Kinda flesh colored glow. Or something... not sure.

So Ill have to redo that.

 

So I got EKWB pastel red. I like this much much better. After a full night of leak testing. It is.. done. Or at least the tubing part. Now to put the rest in and hope the rig doesnt implode.

Final Build Pics happening tomorrow after my lights come in. Had to swap out red lights for white because the red just looked like a nightmare. Also the Cage plate is reserved for a nice big AMD sticker. (Hint Hint Amd *cough* wink) The front needs some customer work on the front plate. But I just dont have the time right now for that.

See this nightmare?! Waaaay to much red. Swapping to white lights.

I do like the led temp sensors in the cage plate that I cut out from pelxi. Im almost ashamed to show the back of the pc during my "somebody please help me!" moment when trying to cable manage all of this mess.

So I bought a brand new lamptron touch fan controller and it literally died after I got everything plugged in. I had to throw my old touch screen dual bay controller in there after a quick disassemble and paint. Ill have to change that out at one point as well.

 

I hate the top and pretty much the front of it. im gonna try and find a decent top case mod. I also want to laser cut the front panel out and add in a light bar as soon as I figure out how. With AMD letters in red. I think that would look cool and really break up all the white. Maybe do something about that gap on the sides of the bluray and fan controller. it just looks awkward.

 

Keep an eye out for more pics. This is gonna be a every changing project. I like it and I dont at the same time. I still want more oomph from it. Needs more obnoxious overkill. Kinda like a sweet sweet AMD sticker *cough*sendmeasticker*cough* for my cage plate.
